A Hand to Hold in the Dark

“For You light my lamp; the Lord my God illumines my darkness.” – Psalm 18:28

Why are children afraid of the dark? Maybe it’s a fear of being left alone, a feeling of separation, their vivid imagination or shadows in the dark.

The fact is, children fear the dark for many of the same reasons adults do. It seems many fears intensify in the night especially sleepless nights. But I have good news: God is with us wherever we go.

Listen to a portion of Psalm 139(NIV): “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the Heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”

Like a loving Father, God offers us a hand to hold in life’s darkest hours. He’ll carry us through the darkness and lead us where we need to go.

Do these devotionals bless or encourage you? If so, would you please consider lifting me up in your prayer, so that I will grow in wisdom and continue sharing Christ through this media.
